In Our High Street Shops

Volunteer in our High Street Shops

Volunteering in one of our High Street shops is a fantastic way to make a difference whilst supporting your local Hospice. It's also a great way to meet new people, be environmentally conscious and engage with your local community. Some of our volunteers have also gained employment either directly with the Hospice or with another employer because of the experience they've gained.

Retail volunteers get involved in all aspects of running a busy shop. We'd love your help with some or all the following:

  • Providing excellent customer service including using tills
  • Sorting, processing and steam cleaning stock as it arrives from our customers or warehouse
  • Arranging imaginative and attractive merchandising and window displays
  • Cleaning surfaces and ensuring a safe physical environment for you, our customers and staff

Please register your interest using the form below and we will be in touch to organise a taster session.
